We love Natalie Portman. We have since Star Wars all those years ago. Perhaps its because of her amazing acting. Or maybe its just because of her youthful smile. Whatever the reason, Natalie Portman never disappoints with her style. She is usually pretty down to earth and casual while out and about on the town. At red carpet events, however, she has a very poised, clean cut, girly look.
If you watched the Oscars, you had to follow up to the Vanity Fair party! Pictured above is Natalie Portman in a gorgeous white floor length gown, Christian Louboutin pumps, and carrying a gorgeous Christian Dior horn handle clutch. Can we just say that we love how Natalie paired her white dress with white pumps that had a red sole? How very chic of her. But what we really adore about her outfit is her very unique bag. Portman’s bag has a horn handle instead of no handle or a loop as a normal clutch. It makes the whole look totally runway worthy!
In April, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted exiting Coach headquarters with company creative director Reed Krakoff. Soon after, Coach confirmed that Paltrow was set to serve as brand ambassador for an international campaign to mark Coach’s 70th anniversary this Fall and next Spring. Krakoff called Paltrow “a natural choice . . . She embodies the spirit, energy and elegance of the Coach brand.”
Peter Lindbergh shot Paltrow on the top of the Tudor City skyscrapers in Manhattan for ads that will only be used in international issues of Vogue, Vanity Fair, InStyle and Harper’s Bazaar.
Planting a garden filled with mint, kale, basil, and salvia isn’t the only way Gwyneth Paltrow is getting ready for the warmer weather.
In the 38-year-old star’s latest post on her healthy-living website GOOP.com, she shares her spring fashion picks.
But dressing like the actress, author and lifestyle guru is going to cost you: $18,301 to be exact.
Paltrow, who is known for her super chic style, teamed up with luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter to put together six outfit concepts revolving around key wardrobe “basics” including a $785 Stella McCartney jersey tank dress, a $1840 Chloe silk jacket, and a $90 Kain T-shirt. The least expensive item is a Splendid cotton tank for $44.
The svelte star, who poses in each look (including a bikini), calls her sartorial picks “great pieces which are versatile enough to wear to the office and during your summer leisure time.”
This is all great but Gwyneth forgot to give her readers an alternative in pricing and now they are asking for it. If she can team up with net-a-porter.com I’m sure she could do the same with more affordable brands like COACH… especially since she’s their New Brand Ambassador! Most of us can spend $300 on a new bag but $3000 could make some people lose sleep at night… just saying.
Gwyneth Paltrow will serve as Coach’s brand ambassador for its upcoming international campaign, marking the company’s 70th anniversary!
Paltrow told press, “I grew up in New York City and I’ve always thought of Coach as the quintessential New York brand. I’ll never forget getting my first Coach bag,”
The ads, to be shot by Peter Lindbergh on a Manhattan rooftop, will be featured in Asia and Europe, including France, Spain, the U.K., Portugal, and China and will debut this fall and next spring.
Gwyneth is “a natural choice. She embodies the spirit, energy, and elegance of the Coach brand,” said the company’s president and executive creative director, Reed Krakoff.
According to reports in the NY Post, Gwyneth Paltrow was seen leaving the Coach headquarters in NYC with creative director of the brand, Reed Krakoff. After seeing the two together, there was much speculation that Gwyn was chosen to star in either a campaign for Coach or for Krakoff’s personal fashion brand.
Tis the season to sue for trademark infringement, it seems. While Christian Louboutin has recently filed two suits over red soles, now Coach has filed a suit against suburban mall mainstay Jo-Ann Fabric for copying its C-logo on fabric being sold online and in stores.
The handbag and leather goods purveyor claims the Blizzard Fleece Fabric bears an double-O pattern that’s”confusingly similar” to its trademark back-to-back C logo and is seeking more than $2 million per O/C mark, plus damages and fees.
Coach, a brand that likely deals with trademark infringements quite regularly when it comes to its handbags and logo overall, seems pretty fired up about the pattern, adding false advertising and trademark dilution to the charges. According to WWD’s report, the defendants have as of yet declined to comment.
